Lake St Council Bash 2015 header

Lake Street Bash – November 19

Every November, the Lake Street Council holds its only fundraiser of the year, the Lake Street Bash. The money raised at this fundraiser ensures that the Council can continue their work renewing and strengthening the business community on the Lake Street corridor and the Twin Cities at large.

Luckily for us, supporting the Lake Street Council is a ton of fun! Attendees get to sample wines provided by East Lake Liquors and beer from local breweries, eat authentic Mexican food from El Rodeo Nuevo, and listen to live music. As you eat and drink you also get to bid on silent auction items donated by many of the people and businesses that make Lake Street great.

Franklin Avenue Bridge Update

Franklin Bridge construction - Oct 2015

If you travel across the Franklin Avenue Bridge, you may not see all the activity occurring below the deck. One of the main construction activities during the past year has been to restore deteriorated areas of the bridge. In October, crews were busy with restoration work on all five spans and two of the piers. One of the areas of focus has been the southern half of Span 2. Crews, tied-off for safety, work high above to remove segments of concrete in need of repair.

Franklin Bridge span 2 work - Oct 2015

As long as the weather holds up, crews will continue to take advantage of it. The focus of next year’s activity will be on deck removal and replacement. For more information and to sign up for email updates visit Hennepin County’s Franklin Ave Bridge webpage. Please direct any questions or comments to franklinbridge@hennepin.us.
